Heh! I did this during my first trip to Singapore to see my mom, there’s a supermarket near my sister’s place that has an outlet for legalized state betting *right inside*, of particular interest being football and motorsports.
This is different from the common lotteries that most countries have, with much lower odds compared to online betting sites as a form of taxation.
It was the start of BPL and I bought SGD 10 for West Ham to win at 2.10 odds. I won this one, getting me SGD 11 nett (after deducting the original SGD 10 – the total winnings was SGD 21).
It’s basically winning a pack of smokes, just did it for fun.
I went for a random K-League match after collecting my winnings the next day while grocery shopping, also with a SGD 10 bet for a return of SGD 28.50.
There are various permutations possible – total goals, HT/FT, etc with corresponding odds (highest I’ve seen is 300 – which will net you SGD 3,000 with SGD 10). The minimum bet is SGD 5.
I lost this one, and stopped playing – the queue was wayyyyy too long and I just wanted to see how Singapore Pools works.
…and that is how I won SGD 1 in Singapore. :)
